Instructions to Authors
The European Centre for Excellence is a multidisciplinary journal aimed at attracting contributions from interdisciplinary. Authors are invited to submit a full-length paper, original and unpublished research articles, based on theoretical or experimental works for publication. Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or academic thesis) and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The journal provides a forum for discussion and debate of current international public health issues, with a focus on the world. Monthly issues contain peer-reviewed original articles, editorials, commentaries, book reviews, news, letters to the editor, announcements of events, and various other features.
Manuscripts must be submitted online. Once you have prepared your manuscript according to the instructions given, please visit the online submission web site. The Scholars Hub, the parent body for the centre for ECE Journals discourages the submission of more than one article dealing with related aspects of the same study. Authors are encouraged to refer to the instructions on submitting your manuscript online. The manuscript must be accompanied by copies of any permission to reproduce already published material, to use illustrations or report sensitive personal information about identifiable persons.
All papers submitted to the ECE Journals are checked by the editorial office for conformance to the author and other instructions as specified. Non-conforming manuscripts will be returned to authors. Before submission, please avoid the most common reasons for non-conformity:
|ü A minimum font size of 11 throughout the contribution, including the reference list, the tables and figures.|
|ü The text has double line spacing (2.0) throughout the contribution, including the reference list, the tables and figures.|
|ü Word count and a maximum number of references are within limits for the contribution type.|

vii. Future Research
References must be typed with double spacing and must be numbered as they are cited. References first cited in tables or figure legends must be numbered so that they will be in sequence with references cited in the text. Authors are discouraged from citing material that is not commonly available, e.g., databases, patents, computer files etc. Numbered references to personal communications, unpublished data and manuscripts in preparation or submitted for publication are unacceptable. The style of references is that of Numbering. Sample references are as follows:
 L. Squire, H. Schmolck, and S. M. Stark, “Impaired auditory recognition memory in amnesic patients with medial temporal lobe lesions,” Learning Memory, vol. 8, no. 5, pp. 252–256, 2001.
 C. Duncan, “Psychophysics and psychology hearing,” Amer. J. Psychol., vol. 92, no. 2, pp. 377–379, 1979.
 B. Moore, “Psychophysics of normal and impaired hearing,” British Med. Bull., vol. 43, no. 4, pp. 887–908, 1987.
